    I've gotten so many new cc numbers in the past year it drives me nuts! I had the same number for probably 10 years or so - had it memorized for convenience - and then it was compromised. Then got...

    This makes me so thankful that I decided to go pick up my pony myself. I had tried uShip because a friend had a horse hauled to her house a couple weeks earlier and the same guy bid on my job. I...

    Interesting story on your experience - good for you for sticking with it. I might have given up before I got to the point where I enjoyed it.

    Jingles for finding your boarder's horse! I remember reading a story online about a woman who was packing out in the woods of Colorado, iirc, very back woods, very out there. One of her horses got...

    I've never posted there and only have been to lurk a few times - it was one of those times that I came across the ad for my pony!

    I've never had a flu shot. My old employers tried to make us get them and since I hated my bosses and thought they were micro-managing controlling assholes I refused to get one! Ha!

    Thanks for the info! She's my first young pony and so I'm always interested in what others are doing/have done. She gets handled a lot and is quite smart. I'm not planning on getting on her back...

    I love that picture! I must say, that's not a big pony, yet you both look fine on him size-wise - are you both petite people? How old was he when you started him u/s? Congrats on doing such a...

    I tried Pilates for a few months and instead of helping my back, I came away from it with more back pain. I had trouble with the "neutral back" position when doing floor exercises and I'm pretty...

    I love that second picture! Do you have any pictures of the ride? How awesome is that!?

    I have a pony, too! I bought her from exvet a few months ago. She's only two so I haven't ridden her...

    Congratulations! Once I watched the video I liked her - looks like she tries for you and just doesn't know anything vs. knowing bad things. Best of luck with her!

    Hay nets/bags - how big?

    I'm interested in switching over to hay nets/bags for at least a couple feedings. Right now I feed loose hay 4x/day to my three horses, which is fine in the summer because they find other things to...

    Training is a progression, no? So perhaps the aids you were using when she was struggling are now too much for her. Now she gets it and so doesn't need such a strong cue to pick up the canter. Do...

    This would be a great sig line if I didn't already love the one I have!

    For me, no - I'd rather get something young and unstarted than re-train bad training or gaping holes in basics.

    Having said that, there are myriad reasons why she could be resisting contact -...

    Personally, I steer clear of people who say "specializing in western, english, dressage, jumping, reining, barrels, equitation, halter, hunters" etc... specialize means...

    Thanks for that link, CD - pretty much what I thought. Poor ponies - I feel so bad for them. I am noticing little coughs or sneezes and runny eyes here and there, but they are keeping their own...
  24. Anything to do for horses in smokey-fire weather?

    We're getting some thick smoke from a big fire in NorCal. I'm not usually one to be sensitive to air quality, but my eyes are burning, I have a headache, my nose hurts, and my throat feels like I've...
